I have to make a shoebox cake with an open lid and it needs to have tissue paper inside. Can someone help me with directions on making this, please. Is ther a special technique used to do it?
Thanks so much,
roll g/p very thin , then cut and gather to look like tissue paper. hth
you can roll g/p thinner than fondant, so g/p looks more like tissue paper.
Ok great! Thanks a bunch icer101.
Oh, one question, my tissue paper has to be black or pink. Will a 50/50 work being that g/p doesn't come in color? Or should I just add some tylose to my colored fondant?
Hi, here is another link. I would just add tylose to my colored fondant.
at a michelle bommarito class, she suggested that we roll out gp super thin and lay it over crinkled foil to dry so it would take on the "wrinkled" look of tissue, assuming thats what you're going for
YES, THANK YOU BOTH FOR THE GREAT IDEAS I greatly appreciate it. I'm off to try right now!
Have you tried sugarveil? It works great for this. You can even make it lacey looking. It has a learning curve but well worth it. Great support if you need some help call them. I used black lace in my hatbox cake. Loved the effect.
Dreamacres, I haven't learned how to do sugarveil as of yet. I actually missed the class on this one sounds like yr cake was beautiful and I love lace too thank you so much for yr help
